Visitors from around the globe and nationals too, flock to the volcanos of Costa Rica, which is renowned for its 27 national parks and having five percent of the world’s biodiversity. The volcanos are located in parks and are responsible for creating incredible natural beauty. They are the source of rain forests, rivers of every color, grand waterfalls, hot springs, incredible wildlife, and flowers. Tourists partake in thrilling activities like tubing, rafting, zip lining, canyoning, horseback riding and hiking both in national and private parks.
Volcanoes also provide Costa Rica’s arable soil for agriculture, minerals for mining, heat for energy production, and an abundance of fresh water.
Like all moody volcanoes on the planet they will sometimes lay dormant for centuries until that day when they release a volcanic eruption of notable proportion. Rest easy; thanks to modern scientific advancements they are almost predictable these days.
